CenturyLink has acquired SEAL Consulting, an Edison, New Jersey-based SAP solutions provider, for an undisclosed sum.
The deal underscores the Monroe, Louisiana-based telco’s intent to continue investing in its already broad portfolio of IT services after having sold its global data center fleet to Medina Capital and BC Partners. The company’s executives have said in the past that the divestment of nearly 60 data centers didn’t mean it would begin winding down its IT services business.
SEAL helps enterprises with implementation, post-implementation support, and outsourcing for a variety of SAP solutions. CenturyLink and SEAL expect the telco’s existing infrastructure and services will strengthen the combined company’s SAP business.
CenturyLink is already an SAP supplier, providing the German enterprise software giant’s cloud-based in-memory database HANA, and the acquisition brings an additional team of SAP experts into its fold.
